Maritime Museum and Oosterkerk Area Walk

Car-free walking along the Wittenburgerkade in Amsterdam

Maritime Museum and Oosterkerk area Walk

1.3 miles / 2.2 kilometres

Lovely, leafy, waterside walk when you feel like something completely different. Despite being the old shipyard area and housing for the shipyard workers, this area is mainly recent residential architecture. Most of the old buildings were knocked down to make way for modern housing but it still feels authentic and it has been nicely planted with trees of all sorts.

It is car-free for the most part and the track takes you right beside the water. Important to note that the ‘secret’ access is under the white vertical columns left of the café pub. Go right under there and you will arrive in a green oasis.
You'll have the same procedure on your way back – leaving the area via a lovely arch which is a kind of a (public) corridor under the buildings.
